Procedure Description (provided by manufacturer):
UltraShape is a FDA-cleared, non-invasive body-shaping procedure using focused, pulsed ultrasound energy to selectively destroy fat cells. The procedure is nonsurgical, which means no incisions, no anesthetics and no recovery time. UltraShape’s ultrasound energy destroys the walls of treated fat cells in the body and releases that fat in the form of triglycerides. Those triglycerides are then processed through the liver and eliminated from the body naturally. Meanwhile, the surrounding tissue, nerves and muscles are left unharmed. Typically, the UltraShape procedure involves a series of three treatments spaced two weeks apart.
Typical Clinical Applications:
UltraShape is FDA-cleared for selective, non-invasive fat destruction in the abdominal region.
Best Patient Candidates:
UltraShape is ideal for people with stubborn fat or genetically acquired problem areas. UltraShape is not recommended for major weight loss.
Other Patients Considerations:
For best results, maintaining a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise is recommended.
